"People are uptight ever since 9 / 11," he said. "Something's wrong. I guess it's because everyone's nervous. It's almost as though road rage has moved into street rage and office rage.

RECENTLY I found myself in a deep nostalgia wallow as a result of two occurrences:(1) Timothy Leary went up to that Big Volkswagen Microbus in the Sky.(2) I turned 49. This means I'm almost 50, which is halfway to the stage in life where a person can wind up on the Willard Scott Birthday Segment of the "Today" show, the one where they show a picture of an extremely senior citizen who looks like "Juanita," the semi-preserved 500-year-old frozen Inca woman unearthed last year, and Willard says: "Happy birthday to Mrs. Claudia A.

THEY don't tell you the real truth about health care in this country," Peter Connole told me. "The reason health care costs so much is that people don't want to die."I said, "That's a given, but I don't understand what it's got to do with the spiraling costs of medicine.""In days gone by Americans did not have the option.
